A healthier Slow Cooker Blueberry Peach Cobbler recipe, full of juicy berries and peaches and a touch of brown sugar. This easy dessert is made entirely in your crock pot!For the fruit Ingredients
14 ounces (about 4 cups) frozen or fresh peaches (peeled and sliced if fresh)
9 ounces (2 cups) frozen or fresh blueberries
2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
¼ cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extractFor the cobbler dough
1 cup whole wheat (or white whole wheat) flour
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup (4 tablespoons) cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
¼ cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extractMethod
- Make the fruit mixture: Combine peaches, blueberries, brown sugar, honey, and vanilla in a large bowl. Stir and then set aside. It\'s ok if the honey and sugar aren\'t evenly distributed yet, as you will stir them again after you make the cobbler dough.
- Make the cobbler dough: In a medium bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Using a pastry blender or your fingertips, cut in the butter until it is the size of small peas. Combine the milk and vanilla and then stir into the flour mixture until the dough comes together.
- Lightly spray the bottom of the slow cooker with cooking spray. Crumble the dough evenly over the bottom of the slow cooker. Stir the fruit to make sure it\'s evenly coated with the honey and brown sugar, and then place on top of the dough.
- Cover and cook on high for 2 ½ hours until filling is hot and bubbly. Serve warm, with ice cream if desired. Enjoy!
